How much drive space do we need for the whole archive? I have two old computers I use for storage and have about 60gig at the moment. I'm a computer retard though. I was just gonna cut and paste all the threads with Z in them and save them, but you guys are light years ahead of me.

I think it's important that we save Z's musings and thoughts...not just for us fans, but for his family. I'm betting once they've done some grieving, his friends and family might want to dwelve into his pastimes and work and by us saving his work, might help them out.

And it'll help new fans get more insight into the Z-man. I'd hate for a talented writer like him to be lost in the obscurity of normalcy. Glad to see you guys have the same thoughts.

John, thank you so much for your very kind offer. I think all of us are in shock and grasping at anything to give us purpose in this moment. You know how close Z and I were, and I know that I'm struggling real hard to come to grips. All of us are.

I appreciate your offers and as soon as I know more, I'll be glad to pass info along. BTW, do you still have my phone number? I'd really love to hear from you. Contact me through my email if anything, I've been checking it regular now. zombie.diva@yahoo.com

Holy fucking shit man! This is so fucked up. I've been absent from the forums for a little while and its fucking tearing me apart inside to know that I missed out on a chance to talk to him one last time. This really sucks guys.

I tried to get in touch with a few more people. At least to let them know what happened. I hope they stop by.

BTW, can anyone tell me who was the one in chat with the person who wanted to write an article about Z? I'd like to know what was discussed, what questions they asked. I got an email and considering a few things, I'm not down with talking to anyone who doesn't have proper credentials. The questions I was asked were quite personal.

I know something. He was still working on it and it was going through edits. I cannot say anything further, and I do not know if it will be published. It's a bit soon to really know anything for sure.

Ok...I'm thinking we really should have a seperate thread so we can keep current on archiving the material from this site so we don't loose our memories of Z-man and not get it lost amongst other things and those paying respects to the man. You know, on who's got what stuff/ what threads/files and where's it's at so we can access or recover it later.

Does that sound good/ok?

I keep trying to find the right words but I can't. This is all so fucked...I can honestly say I've never had a harder time dealing with the death of a friend. A fucking amazing, great friend. I have no shame admitting that I spent most of last night crying. Even now, I'm having a hard time typing this without getting teary eyed.


We've lost an amazing individual. His inspiration guided me through so many sketches, so many paintings, my writings...so so much. I want to paint some kind of memorial piece, something, anything. I need to.

For fuck's sake, we need to construct a monument for Z, in his honor. People like him are far and few between. He'll go down in my book as one of the greatest people I've had the pleasure to interact with, I'll honestly remember and respect him for the rest of my days. I feel a deep sense of regret for anyone who didn't have the pleasure of knowing him.


Rest in peace, Zach...we all loved you more than you could have imagined.

Anything. For any of you. As far as I'm concerned, it's each and every single one of our duties to keep him and his memories alive to the best of our ability.




We need to cherish every word he shared with us.

Sorry I never visited this forum or ever met any of you before now.  I met Z at Horror Realm this year.  I was lucky enough to exchange books with him.  I regret that we only talked for a few minutes, but it was good to meet him.  He was friendly and polite (a class act).  Kind of guy you'd be glad to call a friend.

off top of my head, maybe a Z overlayed over a biohazard symbol, something along those lines. I'd get a Z memorial tat

Shock and disbelieve were my first reactions. Now I only feel sorrow for a man of vast talent, who will be missed by so many here on this board.

Maybe one day we can take comfort in the fact that he touched so many people that their lives are far better for it.

Rest in peace, Z.

I had the honor of meeting Z at Horror Realm. Humble, enthusiastic, a gentleman . . . only a few words to describe him. He left a lasting impression on me both in his mastery of writing and in his personal interaction with me. I wish the world had more people like Z.

I recorded an interview with him, and I'm going to replay it in a tribute podcast as soon as I can get something recorded.
